    HCl is a strong acid; it dissociates completely to form H+ and Cl- ions. Thus, it is a strong, rather than weak, electrolyte.

    CH3COOH is acetic acid, a weak acid. Only some of it will dissociate (to H+ and acetate ions), so it will only be a weak electrolyte.

    NH3 will react with water as a weak base: NH3 + H2O <----> NH4+ + OH-

    It will thus also be a weak electrolyte.

    KCl is a soluble ionic compound, and as such, it will be a strong electrolyte.
